Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. The enamel on your teeth can get surface stains from drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee, and this can make your teeth appear yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. For reliable, safe results, the team at Skyway Dental Clinic provides Zoom whitening treatments. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a customized take-home whitening kit.

In either instance,  care is taken to protect your gums and other tissues during the whitening process. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents. These usually subside in the first 24-48 hours following whitening.

What's involved in a Zoom in-office procedure?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Skyway Dental Clinic team member will apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth in three to four sessions accelerated by a white light.

Your practitioner will first cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They will then apply the bleaching solution to your teeth and position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three to four 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert may place a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. Then it’s finished. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the Skyway Dental Clinic team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits.
